We tested the feasibility and acceptability of a question prompt intervention for patients recently diagnosed with HIV using a single group pretest-posttest design. Three healthcare providers (HCPs) and 18 patients, enrolled by convenience sampling, participated. Patients chose questions from a list of 14 items about patients’ adherence and health problems; then, they were provided with information. Communication time with nurses and number of questions significantly decreased, while health-related quality of life increased. The most frequently asked questions concerned medication adherence, sexual relationships, and the meaning of test results. The intervention facilitated communication with HCPs among patients.
